Marilynn and Sheila Brass are on a mission to bring old-fashioned American home baking back to everyone’s kitchen. Baking with the Brass Sisters embodies the philosophy that’s drawn thousands of fans to them: “We believe that there is nothing that tastes as good as something baked by someone who loves us, unless it is something we have baked and shared with someone we love.”
In their new book, Marilynn and Sheila have gone to their collection of trusted manuscript cookbooks and handwritten recipes that number in the thousands to rediscover the home-baked treats that were brought to America from around the world – Russia, The Ukraine, Germany, Austria, France, Greece, India, Costa Rica, Armenia, Italy, England, Ireland, Norway, Canada , as well as many created here the US. They have listened to the stories of recipes that have been passed down by family and friends and interpreted them for the home kitchen. They’ve even included some of their own recipes created over 126 years of combined home baking experience.
Readers will find wonderful recipes for treats like Grandma Goldberg’s Honey Cake, Chocolate Walnut Banana Muffins, Billy Goat Cookies, Cobblestone Apple Tart, Mother Carleton’s Black Walnut Layer Cake, Nana May’s Irish Yeast Bread, Jack’s Chocolate Caramel Walnut Tart and many more. Baking with the Brass Sisters is a classic baking book that people will keep on their shelves, bake from, and cherish for years to come.
